Tenuta Tignanello is a 57-hectare estate, where only three wines are made: Tignanello, Solaia and Marchese Antinori Chianti Classico Riserva. Viticultural experiments have been carried out with the aim of harvesting the grapes with higher concentration and soft tannins. One of the latest innovations is the special use of the soil’s limestone (albarese in Italian). The tiny, shiny white stones were put under the vines, whereby the stones reflect the sun’s rays back onto the grapes close to the ground, ensuring they get enough warmth. The tannins are softer and rounder in the finished wines, but the Sangiovese variety’s typical structure and complexity are retained. The Chianti Classico Riserva has been made since 2011, and it’s 90% Sangiovese and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon. This richly aromatic, layered Chianti is aged in small French and Hungarian oak barrels for a year, then for another one in the bottle.
The family’s wine history spans 26 generation since 1385, with novelties that defined the wine world, a network of estates on 1,000 hectares in Tuscany and Umbria, wine, brandy, grappa and olive oil. Books could be filled with the family’s history, and today they are one of Italy’s largest wine enterprises.
